Great food & atmosphere!!
Great food. A little more on the expensive side but well worth it. Was more casual than I expected, which was a good thing
When we reviewed the menu we were concerned about the variety of choices. We did choose the fish and the porkchop. The waitress fired the main course early as we had not finished our appetizer and wanted to bring it out. We requested that we have time so that we could enjoy our meal. Instead of producing new food, they held the items and then brought them to the table cold. After taking our first bites, we sent them back. The second time, it was better, but the porkchop which was supposed to be medium was well done and tough. My dish was most likely re-heated and served.
For the price, this is not what one should expect. We were the last customers of the night when we left and our waitress was not to be found. We understand that it was a Sunday night and during Covid, but all customers should be treated with great food and service.
The reservation included a note that it was my girlfriends birthday. During our meal, there was no mention or consideration towards this occasion.
If you are looking for a meal near union station, go to Mercantile. They got it completely right down to every last detail.
Cool place, good ambiance, great service.
Service was very slow - took 30 minutes for anyone to even come to our table and another 10 before we got drinks. Food was cold - artichoke was flavorless.
Super loud group next to us-drunk drunk and kept being served. Cussing and discussing inappropriate things so loudly a family near us had to leave. Outside traffic noise is above average. Need some type of trees or barrier to street noise. We were overcharged on our bill which they quickly changed once brought to their attention but felt like we just wanted out of there!!
Citizen Rail is a very yummy restaurant in a really cool part of downtown Denver/Union Station area. The biggest downfall to my visit is the portion size of the halibut entree. For $38, you get a bleak 3-4oz filet on top of a bed of creamed corn. The flavors were amazing but I was left wanting more and still quite hungry, which was the biggest disappointment for me. Would I be back? Potentially but not for dinner. Maybe brunch or just happy hour.
Dinner was amazing and the best meal I have had being in Colorado. Definitely coming back!
The food and service here was absolutely amazing. The issue we had was a table of 3 women sitting across from us speaking extremely loudly about how terrible white people are and this made the night extremely uncomfortable.
It was great to be back. I have loved this restaurant since the first time I tried it several years ago. It’s just as good as ever. The wood fire grill makes everything taste wonderful! I had the chicken liver toast and a beet salad to start. I followed it up with a perfectly cooked ribeye! Great dinner, great restaurant! I will be back
A very good experience. The service was excellent as were the cocktails. The food was very good but fell short of the rest of the experience. However, pricing for the food was pretty well on par for the experience. Overall, I will certainly put it on my places to return but it isn't a standout for me.
The chilaquiles brunch item was disappointing. Too many boring chips. The wait person said it was a spicy dish but it was not at all. Would have been better with less chips and more chix, eggs and quacamole. Have been here many times and they seem to be inconsistent. Sometimes great and other times a disappointment.
Our service was spotty. It took forever to get our drinks which were brought to our table after our first appetizer was served. I ordered halibut. It was tiny for the cost of the entree. I asked for a slice of lemon and it took another 10 min to have it delivered. I know things are difficult with Covid. This was my first date-with my husband- since Jan. I will not return.i was very disappointed.
Always outstanding. Solid brunch, great cocktails and best Steak in Denver.
Great service from the hostess to the wait staff.
Went for bday party we all had a great time
Our new go to brunch spot. Thanks for a lovely slow morning!
The steak was AMAZING. We had the Tomahawk Ribeye. It's 48 oz and served for two, but the bone takes up a lot of that weight, so it's not nearly what you're expecting. The flavor was phenomenal though! At $140 for the steak, we wish we had gotten two of their ribeyes instead of the tomahawk. UMM>>> BRULEED BANANAS are incredible. Get the fries with the seasonings. Yummy. We'll be back next time we're in Denver!
The staff was absolutely terrific in accommodating us. Their Tomahawk is hands down one of the best steaks I’ve eaten. Completed by many tasty side dishes.
We had a wonderful time. Great service, delicious food. I’ll definitely be back.
Wonderful brunch on the patio. The poached eggs with avacado toast was perfect! My husband had the traditional breakfast and couldn’t eat it all. A mimosa or two and we were happy campers. Definitely will go back.
amazing vegetarian options!!!! the grilled squash dish was incredible
Food took a long time. Extras that we asked for took a long time or forgot altogether. Did give champagne for Anniversary which was nice.
Hard to evaluate in these odd times. My pate and mussels were good, my friends burger and salad were just regular. The service was very slow and the second glass of wine that she asked for never showed up. With all the restaurants we like we probably won't return.
Pork came out well done twice. Asked for burgers well done, both came out medium rare, we sent them back. Came back medium rare again.
The $56 steak that we ordered medium rare was completely cooked through and not even a touch of pink the 2nd try was raw and cold in the center 3rd was good but at that point everyone else was fine eating. The rest of the food we ordered was mediocre. We won’t go back.
Had a great time catching up with a friend. Several great mezcal cocktails, and the bartender was gracious enough to make us some variations of classics from her excellent skill set. The burger was everything I wanted.
Great Sunday lunch with my wife and my son. Drinks were great - love the Gruner Veltliner! Food was terrific and service was right on - not too intrusive but always there when we needed him.
First night out in a while, with the shutdown and all. It felt great, we had a lovely time.
My dining companion and I just had the avocado and tomato salad and some Rose, but both were excellent. The salad was not what I expected, actually way better than I expected! Cucumber, avocado, heirloom tomatoes drizzled in olive oil with herbs and a healthy portion of burrata cheese. The cheese was sprinkled with red pepper flakes I believe. Paired nicely with the Rose; and the perfect dish for a summer evening!
My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and her '29th' birthday over dinner. We were greeted upon our arrival and offered our choice of seating (hi-top, table or outside). We chose an outdoor table and enjoyed some people watching while eating perfectly cooked steak and fish. Look forward to returning and hoping the oysters are back on the menu.
The food was amazing but our server was not very attentive. She seemed like she didn’t care about our table and never asked once I’m how our food was or if we needed anything else.
One of the first times to just get out and feel normal in a restaurant since the pandemic hit— citizen rail did not disappoint. Most memorable was the great service and the connection we made w the manager and our server both. They’re doing a great job staying nimble and still providing an excellent experience. We were there for three hours just savoring each course and the drinks and the feeling of being out on a Friday night.
It's a great restaurant but the menu during this times very limited. The steak was over-cooked which was a disappointment. Can't wait til theme expands and the short rib is back.
Great food and cocktails. Sat on the patio and felt safe with all the safety measures the restaurant are taking. Highly recommend!
We absolutely love Citizen Rail. We’re so glad that it is open now. The food is of impeccable quality and the presentation is just amazing. The staff there are all so friendly and kind, and they go the extra mile all the time. We are gluten-free and they always accommodate!
Thank you Citizen Rail staff!
The weekly seasonal menu was bomb!!
This was one of the best dining experiences of my life, and I assure you, I am a connoisseur of fine dining. The staff was attentive, communicative and professional. The food was phenomenal. The cocktails were on the money. My steak was cooked and cut to perfection (i had the filet), the monk fish was tender and flavorful. I was extremely impressed with how well we were treated, how meticulous the plating and presentation of our meals were, the overall ambiance was impeccable.
The menu is creative and the service outstanding, and this was with a party of 9. My favorite spot in Denver.
Wonderful and unique menu, very comfortable seating, staff was outstanding!
Great service and the steak and eggs are delicious! Ordered a special starter and donuts that were very dry & inedible. The server took the feedback and didn’t charge us for the donuts. I have been here about three times and though the cocktails at dinner are fantastic I enjoy their breakfast much more so hit this place up for breakfast or a happy hour with friends
